Seraphina will guide you through the process of lino cut, the most direct form of relief printing. She will show you how to transfer your own black and white images onto lino, then cut away the areas you want to print on paper as white (a subtractive process). You will produce at least six prints, applying colour in various ways with rollers and stencils. This workshop is suitable for beginners and intermediate participants.
